Sport: Books and eBooks

About Books and eBooks

We have a large collection of both physical books and eBooks available to staff and students. Each one of our libraries has a physical collection of books suitable for courses that are taught at their campus, however you are welcome to borrow books from any of our libraries. All of our books are arranged on bookshelves, grouped by topic area. These topics and sub-topics are numbered and the books are in number order. So, when you search for a book using our online library search, each book will have a classmark (a number) and this is where you will find the book on the shelf.

You can access our eBooks by searching for something via our library search. If you prefer to read in large print you can change this in the eBook settings, along with background colour and the read aloud feature.

Below you will find a gallery of new books and eBooks that we have recently added to our collection. You will also find key books and eBooks for your subject area - you may recognise some of these from your reading list!
